YouTube happened, we all watched those guys lip sync to the Backstreet boys, started to watch more and more, then it seemingly took over the world and became a career choice for many.
There was a season where I only watched comedy on YouTube. I often prefer music without the video. Chance the Rapper, Same drugs is a big exception to this. It has puppets playing the piano and directing the video. What more could you want from a video?
Back to the comedy videos. As with the way I find most things a friend said ‘have you heard of Flight of the Conchords?’. I confessed I hadn’t assuming it was an Indy band I wouldn’t really like.
I was overjoyed to find out they are “New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”.
I love every song from the first season but the Lord of the Rings parody possibly takes first place (Albi the racist dragon is second). I can’t decide if it is my love of Lord of the Rings that makes me love it, or the playing a solo on an axe shaped guitar. It is likely that it is both.
For whatever reason I love it, I regularly check back on this video.
Strongest advice, Frodo don’t wear the ring.
